The Land Down Under is one of the best places to visit in the world. The huge country offers a wide range of tourist attractions ranging from beautiful beaches to architectural marvels. Another thing that is so great about Australia is that it has a great range of local drinks.
When in Australia, you must definitely try out some of these drinks:
1. Ginger Beer
One of the most popular drinks in Australia is the Bundaberg Ginger Beer. The drink is brewed in a traditional fashion. The first thing brewers do is grind dried ginger.
The ginger is locally sourced and this is what gives it a unique flavor. Ginger is heated after being mixed with water and sugarcane. This allows all the spice from it to be released.
After this, the mixture is fermented and passed through craft filters. Once that is done, one of the best ginger beers anywhere in the world is ready to be served to visitors and locals. Typically, the drink costs about 4.50 AUD per 100ml.
2. Archie Rose
If you are a fan of gin, Archie Rose is one of the best drinks that you could have. It is handcrafted especially for lovers of smooth gin.
It is slightly on the expensive side with a bottle costing about 68 AUD but the excellent taste and the smoothness of the drink will definitely be worth it once you drink it. To add another layer of flavor to your Archie Rose, you should add some premium tonic water to the drink.
3. Bundaberg Brewed Beverages
Most of the popular and unique drinks that you will find in Australia consist of alcohol. If you are someone who avoids alcohol or is simply wanting to drink something without it, then the Bundaberg range of brewed beverages will be perfect for you. A range of non-alcoholic beverages, the Bundaberg Beverages are brewed naturally.
They are fermented but to make them non-alcoholic, the brewers heat them before packing. Guava, Lime, Peach and so many flavors of this soft drink are yours for the taking at an average price of about 10 AUD. The brand is quite popular amongst the locals so you should definitely check it out.
4. 666 Vodka

From these clear waters come one of the most popular vodkas in the world. The 666 Vodka is not just famous in Australia but amongst vodka lovers across the globe. It is definitely one of the best local Australian spirits.
You will have the option to choose between a classic vodka, a butter-flavored one, or a vodka that is infused with coffee. The best thing to do would be to try all three and figure out which one you love the most. The price of 666 Vodka ranges from about 35 AUD to 60 AUD.
